Thank you for having children and insuring the survival of the human race.
I'd really appreciate if you left them at home when you go out to the bar.
Yes the bar. Not the family restaurant, not a regular restaurant with adult beverages but the bar.
Clearly some parents today have no problem taking their babies, toddlers, tweens and teens into a drinking establishment. The bad part about that is they're taking them to where I like to go and I couldn't be more pissed off.
I am liberal about most things. Children in a bar---or even worse---sitting at a bar is not one of them.
I like your kids. They're adorable, funny and super cute. I understand why you keep them around.
But there is something profoundly disturbing about sitting next to little Chad & Caitlin because Mommy and/or Daddy needed a drink so bad they have to drag the kids in with them.
It's a bar, not Disneyland. Your children do not need to see or hear me and my bar friends engaging in adult behavior with alcoholic beverages.
There's a reason why they have a legal drinking age.
And here's the thing---I don't blame your children when they have a temper tantrum because they're out beyond their normal nap time or bedtime, I blame you.
When your toddler won't sit still or wants to stretch out on a banquette like they're on the couch at home, I don't blame them---I blame you.
I don't bring my bar friends to your house to drink, why are you bringing your children to the bar?
Get a sitter.
